I can second guess your attorney - he/she is your professional legal representative.
This is not intended to be legal advise or as legal representation. I am a California personal injury attorney . Be aware that every state has its own statute of limitations; and statutes & case laws that govern the handling of these matters.
I understand that you are a little frustrated after receiving this important information and not being able to immediately get the follow-up answers you are looking for. But the other lawyers are correct, you need to discuss it with your lawyer, even if that means waiting a few days to get an appointment with her. If you are able to hire a private lawyer, you could certainly do that as well.
I wish you the very best, and God bless!

I agree with the other posts, you have to speak with your attorney. Even if that means at the next court date... With the limited information you provided, the police report with conflicting information regarding who the actual arresting officer is, is generally not enough to dismiss a case. It's a matter for cross examination and goes to credibility. Cases are RARELY dismissed just because the police report may contain incorrect information regarding the arresting officer. The main focus is the evidence the state has against you- were you operating a vehicle. Did you blow .08 or higher. Focus on the main facts and not the minutiae. Good luck and the report will give your lawyer fuel for cross at trial.
It appears from your comments that you have been assigned a Public Defender to assist you with your case. I suggest that you email or call them and schedule an appointment to discuss your issues. You are also free to hire an attorney to help you with your case. Many attorneys offer free initial consultations.
